Just because Jerry Sloan is treating Deron Williams like John Stockton, doesn't mean the second-year point guard likes it. Sloan has been trying to limit Williams' minutes, the same way he did with Stockton early in his career.

"I don't like it," Williams said. "You just start playing, getting into the rhythm of the game, and you're out."

"I'm not going to try to get everything I can out of him in one year," Sloan said. "I've always felt like I've had a responsibility to guys, not only for today but for their future. I told John [Stockton] that. He never liked it, but I said, 'Would it be better for you to play 15 years, or 10?' "
